First we have to establish Authority. According to Google, Authority is “the power or right to give orders, make decisions, and enforce obedience”. That seems a little harsh. Basically, for the Internet, Authority is demonstrating you are an expert enough…

A couple of weeks ago while I was on vacation my site was hacked. It started first with a weird email from Wordfence trying to tell me something but it was so garbled I knew either it was in serious need of an update or something worse had happened. When…

Amazing! You should start a Kickstarter to raise funds so everybody can come back if the concert happens.

"Some luck lies in not getting what you thought you wanted but getting what you have, which once you have it you may be smart enough to see is what you would have wanted had you known." - Garrison Keillor
Computers, Technology, and Gadgets seem to be my life. 

Okay, Computers and I aren't dating or anything like that, but I have had a computer under my fingertips since the Commodore Vic 20. Apple 2c and 2e, the first Macintosh's, Tandy TRS80 (pronounced Trash 80), Tandy 1000, even the lowly Timex Sinclair and Coleco Adam. 

In the IBM clone days, I remember booting from a DOS disk and then loading Turbo PASCAL. Two floppy drives in one machine were all the rage then.

Now I live in a world of databases of many flavors and versions as I am part DBA (Oracle, MySQL, MS SQL), OSes of many flavors and versions as I am part system administrator (Windows, UNIX, and Linux), and Enterprise and Mission Critical applications as I am part Basis Administrator (SAP, Maximo, Email, and any other ) that should probably cause me to lose more sleep, but I sleep pretty well. 

My second passion is teaching Computer Technology. I try to share that passion with my students. Knowledge is power. If I ever stop learning, declare me dead.

Spare Time?
In my spare time (Ha ha!) I love living the Internet dream, whether is is being a part of "the social networks" or creating content for my blog and others. (L.A.M.P. Rocks!)

Currently working on two books at the same time (one, a Textbook, the other, science fiction)

Working to be relevant even though I am 2,500+ miles away from Silicon Valley and other Tech Hubs of the world.

BTW, I am NOT a social media expert, nor do I claim to be.

The views expressed are mine alone and not those of my employers.

    Where ever the wind takes me, 1996 - present
    Rather than list my employment history, this is my non-existent company that encompasses every work experience, interest and hobby I have. I decided if I ever started a company it would be called Mirror Abstract Productions and I created the original logo in the Paint program on an early gray scale Macintosh which I printed out on an early dot matrix printer.

If you are looking for great BBQ, then you need to find the Carolina Barbecue Shack. It is hidden behind the University Grill. Take the road beside M&M Tire and find the sign. Take a right and drive on back to the building. They offer pulled pork, hash, beef brisket, and smoked turkey. You will want to add a baked Potato and barbecue beans to that plate with a roll. They have a Shack Sauce, which is a ranch/sour cream based sauce with a hint of garlic that is so good you could probably use it to eat a rock. It tastes great on everything. You will be hard pressed to decide which BBQ sauce to go with, their signature Carolina Barbecue Shack Barbecue sauce or their Carolina Gold sauce, which is a mustard based sauce. They have lots of sides to choose from but the baked potato with the Shack Sauce and barbecue beans are my favorite. Don't want to cook supper, go by and get a Family pack. When they first opened there were picnic tables outside. Then they added an awning for the tables to be under. Over the last couple of years they build a nice building with beautiful tables, air conditioning, and a big screen TV.
